Multiculturalism is a dismal failure in every society. Look at places like France, and even the UK. They had no national identity. Just a bunch of 'cultural zones' and no national pride. Come to the USA, be an American. Not a hyphenated American.

I have a question too. How did the vote get turned into a debate on language. The USA is a country of immigrants and it is multi-cultural with many languages. EVERYONE'S culture should be respected. There are a lot of people in TX that speak German and no one criticizes them. People speak French, Vietnamese, Cantonese, Spanish and even some indiginous languages. Is it only in time of war that languages other than English are recognized? That's silly. It is a well known fact that employers seek out and reward the multi-lingual employees. What is so special about English? I speak it, read it and write it and it is an extremely hard language to learn. Even for a native speaker like me. Yet when we travel to Mexico we don't take a crash course in Spanish because we expect everyone to speak English. When we travel to Europe it's the same thing. Every place Americans travel, we expect someone to speak English. If we are going to be hardcore about everyone in America speaking English, then be sure you speak the language when you travel outside the borders. As for the voters ballots being in English; the only ones that can vote in this country are citizens and they have to know a certain amount of English to pass the citizens test. They know enough English but the translation of the ballots are for clarification; supposedly. I have trouble making sense of the double speak myself. Think of the level of confusion for the non-native speakers. Quit being so biased and think of the country at large.

@Carmelos thx for the heads up I figured as much. Those greedy idiots down at city hall had to place this public arts rider on all of them in hopes that at least one or two would pass. Well I have a clear message to send come tomorrow when I vote NO on all of them. I will also be urging everyone I know to do the same. I'm driving on crappy roads and avoiding flood zones and shopping the discount brands to save money and you clowns downtown want to spend money on public art! Well you're little art rider just soured the whole deal. Get back to living within our projected budget and fix our damn roads and drainage.

@Scandals the 1% public art rider is for the city government to waste on beautification of the downtown area, statues, fountains, etc. Think of howe mny roads little Henry could rename with that kind of loot at his disposal! Vote NO! I did.

okay I would like someone to answer a simple question for me please. What in the hell is this 1% public art rider that seems to be at the end of each of these proposed bond categories? If it is what I think it is which is pork then I will be voting the whole damn mess down as a big fat NO. Luigi regardless of opinions the simple fact is that this is the United States Of America our laws and declarations were and are written in English so it would behove someone who is in this country to learn English just as it would make common sense were I in France to learn to speak French. It's called common sense. As for who was here first we could argue that until the cows come home it's What this Nation is called now and what the founding fathers were speaking when they founded it that matters end of debate.

I saw a list of Parks that are suppose to get help with this bond....I have never heard of some of these parks. One stuck out Thunderbird Hills Park...There is not such park and if there is or going to be, where the hell would they put it? Did they just put a bunch of names on this list to impress people?
- 4/30/2012 11:33 AM
And this countryis not called Spain either Luigi... So what's the point?
- 1/30/2012 1:40 PM
You bunch of mono-minded morons...Spanish was spoken here long before English, and before that thousands of other indigenous languages were used, and incase any of you haven't noticed...this country IS NOT CALLED ENGLAND, fools.
